After a winter in the dry Western air, my hair was a bit fried. The ends were flyaway. The color dull. It would barely hold a curl.
I skipped washings. I stopped using dry shampoo. I slathered on olive oil. Nothing worked.
After I used it, I finished styling my hair and was disappointed to discover no change. Hair = straw-like. I was not amused. I resolved to return the product the next day. But then a funny thing happened.
The next morning, I washed and conditioned my hair using Pureology Hydrate. My hair was definitely shinier, and softer than normal. It was even better the next day. By the third day, people were asking if I’d had a haircut or done something different with my hair.
Moral of the story, the Aveda Damage Treatment works. I probably didn’t see the results the first day because I used a clarifying shampoo to remove the remnants of the olive oil from the day before. Once I switched back to my regular shampoo and conditioner, the improvement was noticeable. My hair is shinier, smoother, and much more manageable.
